Farndale in Yorkshire is the starting point for a journey to see a great spring spectacle - the Grouse season.

In spring Farndale Moor is a great place for bird watching - it's a riot of display of calls and mating behaviour especially where the moor land meets the farmland.

Weeting and Breckand

  • Breckland in Norfolk is a haunting landscape comprising a mixture of forest, arable farmland and heath land

"When it comes to birdlife, our hills and moorlands may not be way up there on the diversity scale, but what species they do have are certainly impressive.


"Some of our hills and moors are undoubtedly wild and inhospitable places… but they are also great places to see nature if you're prepared to look carefully."
